Medical Worker Nurse Talking with Senior Patient

Monday, January 8, 2018, 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET.

Incentivizing Consistent Assignment: A supported approach to quality improvement in nursing homes

Please join us for a discussion to learn about state programs in Tennessee and Utah that provide incentives for nursing homes to implement consistent assignment. Panelists will discuss how they are leveraging their incentive programs to catalyze improvements in quality of care and quality of life for nursing home residents. Their programs each reflect attention to common challenges, including the burden of documentation for nursing homes, data quality, and incorporating a staged implementation.
